Wonderful view of Puget Sound from the dining room but the food was overpriced and nothing special. First of all when you walk in it smells like an old unventilated kitchen in an old house. Stale food smells. The wedge salad was not bad but the special for the evening was awful. It tasted and looked like a poor grocery store entree that clearly had been microwaved. The chicken breast that was supposed to be on top was just precooked, frozen identical pieces of tasteless chicken. I was quite disappointed. Definitely not worth the money.

Called on the day of Father’s Day, I did t have a reservation so they said it would likely be busy later so if I came early they could fit us In. So glad we did walked us right in, service was the best I’ve had at this place and they do a good job most days but this guy was really good!
Mostly I get the Alfredo they serve as I think it’s as good as Olive Garden or maya bit better since I can buy it with lobster. But I will say my kids did and had zero leftovers and they serve good sized helpings.. my wife and I had the steaks she had the filet and I had the rib eye, the filet comes with a red wine Demi glaze so I asked for it on my ribeye with gorgonzola cheese. Wow I wasn’t disappointed! Yum!

Leaving my folks house in the area my husband commented that he was hungry and felt like Italian. I went to Google and typed in Italian restaurant close by. Verrazano’s came up and had pretty good reviews. Reviews are very important to me. I always look at them. We had an early dinner. We both had the salmon chowder and my husband had the veal piccata and I had one of the specials, crab mac and cheese. We both were very happy with our choices. Wonderful atmosphere, view and food. Last but definitely not least, our waiter Drew was excellent. He was very polite, cheerful and attentive and I never once felt like he was hovering. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Sat outside in a great setting looking at the sunset over the water in the distance (but under the flightpath to SEA ... not so bad, though). Service was great. Beer before dinner was an ice cold brew ... nice. Great wine list. The wedge salad was excellent. However, my $39 special of herb encrusted halibut was not so good.Pasta on side was with oil but still quite dry. The fish was a perfectly cut piece that looked like it must have been frozen. There was sort of an herb crust. The fish was way overdone and dry. Did not finish. Too bad, for that price it should have been great!

It's been 28 years since our last visit to Verrazano's. Same restaurant and same delicious dinners. I had the Pollo Parmigiana and it melted in my mouth. I had to take half of it home because it was just to much to eat. Guess what I'm having tonight. Wait start are great people. Parking was not bad. View of Puget Sound is magnificent.
